Subject: Not just written with lush colors on Balinese Life and Culture of the 1930ies ...
... but also written as a new approach on depicting music cultures.

I bought mine in Yogyakarta, Central-Java, in autumn 1990 - and fell in love with the book immediately. I even had to get my mind clear to recognize which part of the 'story' was IN the book, and which part was SURROUNDING me in reality.

I've read parts of it several times again since then, and still it heavily turns on my imagination.

Meanwhile, I became an ethnomusicologist focussed on Indonesian music myself. Besides everything else, for me this writing made the first suggestion to a then new paradigm in ethnomusicology: Write interpretative, dare to write empathically, and don't put out those facettes of the culture you are working on that fascinate yourself most. In spite, with a clear mind, put them in!

McPhee did just this with this little book. Absolutely recommendable!
